Washington (AFP) – Egypt’s pyramids were built by the biblical Joseph to store grain and were not, as archaeologists believe, tombs for pharaohs, Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson has said.
The retired neurosurgeon seeking his party’s nomination for the White House made these remarks in a 1998 address at Andrews University, a school associated with the Seventh-day Adventist Church, to which he belongs, in a video posted Wednesday on Buzzfeed. The church is a conservative evangelical Christian one.
“My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain,” Carson said.
“Now all the archeologists think that they were made for the pharaohs’ graves. But, you know, it would have to be something awfully big if you stop and think about it. And I don’t think it’d just disappear over the course of time to store that much grain.” (What the Hell???!!!!)
Carson added: “And when you look at the way that the pyramids are made, with many chambers that are hermetically sealed, they’d have to be that way for various reasons. And various of scientists have said, ‘Well, you know there were alien beings that came down and they have special knowledge and that’s how, you know, it doesn’t require an alien being when God is with you.” (That’s true!)
In the book of Genesis, Joseph was one of the 12 sons of Jacob. He was sold by his brothers as a slave to merchants headed to Egypt. And he then becomes one of Egypt’s most powerful men.
Carson and Donald Trump have been leading their party’s crowded nominating race.
Carson, however, is seen by many as someone with conservative values rooted in traditional Christian beliefs, and able to appeal to the party’s most conservative Christian religious base.
Kernels of wheat has been stored in the Pyramids for thousands of years. Miraculously when planted and watered these wheat kernels grew. Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew equates the falling of a grain of wheat to the ground, saying unless it dies, it will not “stand up” or resurrect to produce a hundred fold, to his own death and resurrection. Likewise Egyptian Mystery Religion used this fundamental analogy from Nature to portray the cruel death and miraculous resurrection of the god Osiris, or vice versa I should say. The economy of Egypt was built on supplying useful objects for eternal life. In a paradoxical way, Egypt’s economy like are own godless, materialist one is a “throw away economy”, but a “sacrificial” economy as opposed to a non religious throw away economy that makes plastic objects that lasts forever. As sacred as wheat was revered not only as the first offering of the Holy Nile, but the source of altar hosts and ale for the God and gods and all righteous souls in heaven with the God and gods enjoying and celebrating eternal life, of course wheat for the after life was stored in the Pyramids. And in a completely paradoxical way, in this sense you can say the Pyramids were built to store wheat (and a whole host of other things including board games to pass the time away joyfully in Eternity) for the afterlife in heaven with the God and gods for the mummies’ Ka or spirit. This is not what the delusional Ben Carson is saying, however.
Ben Carson equates the Pyramids through the story of Joseph with (concrete and steel) grain bins built for storing wheat in the Midwest. Carson says Joseph, a Hebrew just arrived as a slave child, built the pyramids for such grain storage. The Pyramids were built at least three thousand years before Joseph came to Egypt, and some egyptologists are now saying begun 12 thousand to 35 thousand years ago.
Carson says Joseph’s very elaborate grain bins”is his own personal theory”. Isn’t that the definition of delusion- “your own personal theory of reality”. Carson delusional personal theory of Joseph and Egyptian pyramids as wheat storage bins is not the first delusional statement he has made publicly to the press:
I have to agree with Ben Carson, when he dismisses one delusional theory of pyramid origins-space aliens built them- for his own personal delusional theory Joseph built them, that it takes one to know one-delusional thinking, that is. No one knew Stalin better than Hitler. But Carson is not delusional in this, if you have God, you do not need space aliens to build the pyramids. Carson inadvertently hits the nail on the head here in regards to the Egyptian Mystery Religion’s knowledge of the God and gods through the religion of heaven- as in heaven so on earth- through Astronomy and Astrology which was distilled in Egyptian Mystery Religion through sacred fractional Geometry into the building of the most sophistical edifice to this day ever built by man with God, the Pyramids.
I am sure the delusional Pro Hillary press just like Marco Rubio’s credit history and mortgage default, is searching Carson’s public statements for more of his delusional statements. It takes one to know one. They will surely find several more instances because like all mental illness, delusional people and their personality cult followers do not know they are delusional. Delusional people talk freely, passionately, and self righteously about their delusions, especially their delusions of self grandeur. The delusional Hilary for President press blind to the delusions of Hilary are biding their time as Carson’s delusions of spiritual and scientific grandeur move Carson up in the poles as an identified (snickering under their breath) by the corporate press “devout” Christian, or grain of wheat, past the pro gay marriage, pro trans gender Donald Trump with the support of low information Evangelical Christian voters, who as with Mitt Romney’s run want to be seen as being nice. These low informational Evangelical Christian voters along with “Conservative NEO CON Catholic voters are themselves delusional in their cult like support of the delusional Carson of course. They see Carson as is Christian Zionist anti Islamic/Russian WWIII apocalyptic monger- this of course is a greatest part of Carson’s delusional thinking. These Christian Zionists ignore that Carson is a devotee belonging to a non Christian bizarre 19th century personality cult founded, like Joseph Smith and the Mormons, by another plagiarist phony visionary Ellen G. White which like Mormonism identifies The Roman Catholic Church as The Whore of Babylon.
Wake up low information Carson supporters for President. Carson as black makes you feel nice that you support a black person for President who unlike Barak is “a devout Christian”. But just like Herman Cain, Carson will be imploded by the press when the time is right leaving egg all over your faces and rightly so if you persist in showing as low information voters your lack of judgment in selecting anyone for any office. Carson is delusional, are you? Wake up!
The latest evidence from Ben Carson’s own mouth that Carson is delusional, i.e. Psychotic. Not that Barak and Hillary, Nixon and the Bushes are not as well. Your delusional if you vote for a delusional psychotic for President.
Carson: ‘Close Family Member’ He Tried to Stab Doesn’t Want to Go Public

GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson revealed Thursday that the “friend” he tried to stab when he was 14 was actually a close relative, and he said that person does not want to reveal himself.
CNN spent most of Thursday playing segments of a report that found eight of Carson’s childhood friends who said they never knew him to have bouts of anger as he has described. Only one said he had a vague memory of the story of the attempted stabbing, but thought it was just a story.
“Those claims are absolutely true,” Carson said Thursday night of Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File.” “This is simply an attempt to smear and to deflect the argument to something else.”
“The person that I tried to stab, you know, I talked to today said would they want to be revealed? They were not anxious to be revealed,” he said. “None of those people decided that they wanted to do this. And the media is ruthless. So I would say to the people of America, do you think I’m a pathological liar like CNN does, or do you think I’m an honest person?
No, I know you are a delusional psychotic!
More proof! It’s over for Ben Carson for President. He is another delusional Mitt Romney.

Politico reported Friday that Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson did not — as he has claimed repeatedly — receive a full scholarship to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
In fact, Carson’s campaign admitted that the former neurosurgeon not only fabricated the story of his acceptance into the prestigious military academy, but he never actually applied. This concession came after Politico obtained evidence from a West Point spokesperson that the academy has no record of Carson’s application or his admission — calling into question a key piece of the presidential hopeful’s personal history.
“Dr. Carson was the top ROTC student in the city of Detroit,” Barry Bennett, Carson’s campaign manager, told Politico. “In that role he was invited to meet General Westmoreland. He believes it was at a banquet. He can’t remember with specificity their brief conversation but it centered around Dr. Carson’s performance as ROTC City Executive Officer.”
In his book, “Gifted Hands,” Carson describes a 1969 meeting with General William Westmoreland—fresh off four years of directing the U.S. military strategy in Vietnam—that Carson said resulted in being offered a “full scholarship” to West Point.
“He was introduced to folks from West Point by his ROTC Supervisors,” Bennett continued in his email to Politico. “They told him they could help him get an appointment based on his grades and performance in ROTC. He considered it but in the end did not seek admission.”

It has also been noted by Politico and others that there is technically no such thing as a “full scholarship” to West Point, as the military covers the costs of all who are admitted to the elite academy.
The West Point spokesperson told Politico it’s entirely possible that Westmoreland spoke to the 17-year-old Carson and perhaps encouraged the young ROTC student to consider applying to the academy. However, Politico questions whether that fabled encounter with the famous general even took place.
According to “Gifted Hands,” Carson met Westmoreland in Detroit following the city’s Memorial Day Parade, in which he’d been chosen to march. But, Politico notes that U.S. Army records of Westmoreland’s schedule suggest that the general was in Washington on Memorial Day 1969 and did not make any trips to Detroit around that time.
Carson has hardly shied away from discussing his supposed West Point scholarship offer on the campaign trail. He defending the claim as recently as August 13, in a Facebook post in which he answered questions from supporters. In response to a question from someone named Bill who “wanted to know if it was true that I was offered a slot at West Point after high school,” Carson wrote, “Bill, that is true.”
“I was the highest student ROTC member in Detroit and was thrilled to get an offer from West Point,” he continued. “But I knew medicine is what I wanted to do. So I applied to only one school. (it was all the money I had). I applied to Yale and thank God they accepted me. I often wonder what might have happened had they said no.”
Carson himself has not yet responded to the damning Politico report, but Republican rival Donald Trump wasted no time before expressing his excitement, tweeting Friday, “WOW, one of many lies by Ben Carson! Big story.”
But by Friday afternoon, the Politico report had become the subject of dispute.
Fox News Anchor Megyn Kellytweeted Friday afternoon that Carson’s campaign manager told her show The Kelly File that “The Politico story is an outright lie,” and that “the campaign never admitted to anything.”The Daily Caller also published a story attributing those same quotes to Carson communications director Doug Watts.
“[Carson] never said he was admitted or even applied,” Watts reportedly told The Daily Caller. “This is what we’ve come to expect from Politico.”
Yet, ABC Political Director Rick Klein tweeted that “Ben Carson’s campaign confirms to ABC News that he was never admitted, nor did he apply, to West Point.”
The Carson campaign has not yet responded to a request for comment from Yahoo Politics.
Ben Carson: The Yale Tale Grows – Does His Nose?
Saturday the conservative Wall Street Journal casted doubt on the incident, noting, “No photo identifying Mr. Carson as a student ever ran, according to the Yale Daily News archives, and no stories from that era mention a class called Perceptions 301. Yale Librarian Claryn Spies said Friday there was no psychology course by that name or class number during any of Mr. Carson’s years at Yale.”
Sunday, Carson was on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, and claimed his camp has found a story in the Yale Daily News about the incident. He also appeared on CBS’s Face the Nation, and stated “… we were able to find the article. And it will be coming out within the next day or two showing what happened with that psychology course.”
Carson has posted this on his facebook page:
Here’s the accompanying article Carson posted:
I too doubt the WSJ will make any apology, as none is required by them to Carson. Perhaps one should be going in the other direction.
The article Carson posted neither supports his bizarre account of his involvement in this hoax, nor does it contradict anything the Wall Street Journal said in their article.
Here are some simple questions for the good Dr. Carson:
I have never taken a course called “Perceptions 301,” but there is one thing I do perceive — there is definitely a hoax somewhere in this matter.
“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” – Abraham Lincoln
Ben Carson is delusional, if you don’t see this, are you?
